    Vz Clubsport R8 Head and Cam

    Got quoted 10k for a head and cam by someone. Does anyone in melbourne know any good people that do head and cams for cheaper?

    What's included in the quote?
    If it's just the essentials, around 5-6k is reasonable. If you need an exhaust or add lifters, oil pump, rockers etc, the price can get up there pretty quickly.

    While 10k is high, I certainly wouldn't go with the cheapest price either.

    While details change vastly from shop to shop and what your car requires, I was recently quoted about 5-6K for Higgins heads and Cam combo, but with other work like renew a few gaskets, oil pump and similar including pull engine, it was closer to about 8-9K including a dyno tune. It can sure add up in hurry and probably still need things along the way replaced, just a ballpark figure.

    You should check out the cost of getting a supercharger installed. Much better and more usable power, and may not cost you any more than you have been quoted for the head and cam.

    Unless you need them as well anyway, or a more suitable one. And to think all you went in for was an oil change!
